Point of Interest Details

The 230,000-square-foot Life Sciences Complex brings together biology, chemistry, and biochemistry to promote interdisciplinary research and education. As you approach the building, you'll notice the Climate Change Garden just to the left. This outdoor laboratory features more than 30 species of trees and shrubs. Inside, the five-story Milton Atrium is a favorite student gathering area and home to one of many campus cafes. The Research Wing includes the Imaging and Genomics Centers, as well as 27 interconnecting laboratories that facilitate collaboration among researchers.


The Life Sciences Complex brought the biology, chemistry, and biochemistry departments under one roof for the first time in the University's history. The five-story building was organized into two wings, forming an "L"-shaped configuration. The research wing housed biology research laboratories, lab support offices, conference rooms, and faculty offices. The teaching wing housed biology and chemistry teaching labs, lecture halls, research and technology greenhouses. An atrium, with a cafe, connected the Life Sciences Complex to the Center for Science and Technology.
